FX issues disappointingly non-sinister explanation for why your DVR cut off The Americans 

Some who watched the most recent episode of FX’s The Americans may have noticed that its final seven minutes were cut off by their DVRs, leaving most viewers to assume that those minutes contained sensitive information they were not cleared to see, because spy stuff. But, as it turns out, there is a far more boring answer, according to a network press release. “YOU SAW NOTHING,” this statement disappointingly did not read, before launching into a drably straightforward explanation that FX’s publicity department had given incorrect info to cable and satellite providers, causing DVRs to fail to capture those climactic final minutes. “Those responsible for this embarrassment have been executed,” it also did not read, which is also boring. Anyway, FX reminds fans that “Safe House” is available to view online until May 15. And after that it will explode? No.
